I do my developments locally before posting it to customer servers, which I belive most do.

Given that what would be the actual difference between using windows vs ubuntu for the purpose of customization or development within Odoo?

I am asking this because I just don't want to leave my comfort zone and have a working workflow and IDE in windows.

There is very little difference, apart from performance (much faster with Ubuntu).  There are far more users running on Ubuntu than Windows.  Many Windows users run Virtual Machines.

Be aware of hardcoding system paths/commands which will be different on different platforms.  Make sure to use sys.platform and os.path etc. if you need to do any low level stuff.
